At Great Lakes Ashtanga Yoga we believe that the most direct road to transformation is to align your thoughts, your words, and your actions.
We are dedicated to the teachings of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, and his grandson, R Sharath Jois, which follow the traditional methods according to Patanjali's Yoga Sutras and the 8 limbs of yoga. Our community of dedicated practitioners provide each other with strength and support in this practice and in daily life. Showing up for the first time and stepping into the unknown, no matter who you are, is always the hardest but most important step in any journey.
Meet Your Teachers
US Marine Veteran, long time rock climber and overall outdoor enthusiast
Marque discovered Ashtanga Yoga while seeking different ways to alleviate his lower back pain. After noticing an almost immediate physical change, Marque then slowly began to see other positive changes happening in his life as well. With no Ashtanga teachers in the area, he found himself with no choice but to get up early and practice on his own before work everyday. During this time Marque also attended a 200 teacher training and several Ashtanga workshops and intensives to deepen his understanding of this beautiful system.
In the fall of 2014 Marque decided to follow in the footsteps of the teachers that he most respected and applied for study at the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI). Marque was accepted and spent the first 2 months of 2015 in Mysore, India learning under the guidance of R. Sharath Jois. Marque has practiced with Sharath during multipe US tours and has also returned to India each year since and has practiced with and assisted both Sharath and Saraswathi. Marque received the blessing (Level 2 Authorization) from Sharath on December 12th, 2017 during his morning practice.
Marque is the owner of Great Lakes Ashtanga Yoga which is located on 8 wooded acres in Geneva, Ohio. He offers a traditional Mysore program, private lessons and workshops.
